This piece is based on “The Rat Race”, a fable within the novel, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIHM by Robert C. O’Brien. 

This short excerpt from a childhood novel made an impression on Carson's young mind. It has popped into her head at many important junctions in her life to served as an allegory for the dangers of a blind pursuit of progress.
